A person’s life shouldn’t be defined by the worst thing they have done.
Mission and approach
In our experience, addressing the underlying causes stands the best chance of ending the cycle of reoffending.
A criminal record, a history of addiction, homelessness and a lack of self-confidence and self-belief means that few people believe someone would give them another chance.
C2C supports these individuals (and their families) to move forward with their lives and contribute positively to their community.
We provide our services to people of all faiths, or none, and regardless of their crimes, age, ethnicity, cultural background, gender identity, sexuality, or disability.
So far in 2023 we have supported 512 women using our centers, with an average of 84 unique visitors and 234 individual visits per month. (We work with women across Northamptonshire, and both women and men on projects in Milton Keynes.)
When I have visited the C2C premises, I have been struck by how welcoming it is.
It is inspiring to see female service users transform and reach their potential, passing on the benefits to their children, who have often been subject to trauma and lived in a toxic environment.
